Hall of Fame

The Cooper Union Alumni Hall of Fame

The Cooper Union Alumni Hall of Fame was dedicated on the 150th anniversary of The Cooper Union (in 2009) to recognize the achievements of outstanding alumni in the fields of art, architecture and engineering.

The Alumni Hall of Fame includes all alumni who have received the Augustus Saint-Gaudens, John Q. Hejduk, and Gano Dunn awards; the Peter Cooper Public Service Award; the President’s Citation; and alumni who have been recognized as Urban Visionaries. Additionally, the deans of each school selected distinguished alumni who were deceased before the awards were created.
